The club’s developmental programs are designed for young players at the beginning of their soccer journeys. Our programs are offered for players aged U3 – U12 and provide an environment for players to learn and play the beautiful game. Players are exposed to training that teaches them the fundamentals of the game and allows players apply to their learning in fun activities and games. Within the developmental stage, players are exposed to 4v4, 5v5 and 7v7 structured matches.
Additionally, we extend our club programming to the greater community through camps in the Winter and Summer off seasons. Camps are open to all ages and all abilities.
The Juniors 8-week program is designed to teach the FUNdamentals of soccer alongside the development of basic motor skills, using a fun energetic curriculum delivered by our enthusiastic and qualified coaching staff. It is tailored to both boys and girls, with differing programs for u3/u4/U5’s to allow players to develop at an appropriate level.
The Micro Soccer program provides educational and developmental training for our youngest players born between 2019–2015 (3–7-Year-olds). Micro-soccer is our first program that offers players to experience both training and games. The concept behind micro-soccer is to allow more touches on the ball by having small teams playing on small fields. Practices are led by professional JIYSC coaches alongside volunteer Micro Team Coaches. Sessions are designed to expose kids to the basic fundamentals of the game of soccer while promoting a “fun-first” atmosphere based on JIYSC curriculum.
The Futbol Play Zone-Johns Island program is designed to provide a gateway for many kids who want to pursue soccer beyond the recreational level. Our goal is to give kids a foundation to play soccer and the opportunity to explore their creativity with more free play. Licensed coaches from JIYSC will work with our kids during the weekly practice sessions. Saturdays will be the designated ‘festival style’ game days.
The mission of JIYSC camps is to create memories with great people and enhance our community through soccer. James Island Youth Soccer Club’s goal is to provide the best opportunity for children of all ages to develop and enhance their soccer abilities, technically and tactically, while maintaining a level of enjoyment and love for the game of soccer.
